I am pleased to welcome you to the University of Montana and the Grizzly athletics family. I trust your time here will be some of the most memorable in your life. I know you chose the University of Montana for all the incredible opportunities we have to offer. Make the most of those opportunities...in competition, in the classroom and in the community.
There are high expectations of all Grizzly student-athletes. Please, always give your best, especially in the classroom. Never forget what a privilege it is to wear "Montana" across your chest. You are now part of a great history and tradition of excellence. All of Griz Nation will watch with pride and enthusiasm as you grow and develop academically, athletically, and socially. Please remember to represent yourself, your family and your team and this great university with pride, integrity, and honor.
I look forward to the upcoming year and all the wonderful experiences ahead. Enjoy each moment and take full advantage of everything UM has to offer. Best wishes on a prosperous and successful career.
